Re: My Job, My Hell...

Okay, so where did I leave off? Oh yeah, I was hiding in the "House of the Never Rising Sun". Well, not hiding yet. Let me elaborate: I had just discerned I was in a house that was manufacturing "crack" cocaine. It would explain the bullet holes in the house's exterior. The house was also made so da...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

A patient coughed up a giant gob of mucusspitlunggoop while I was drawing his blood. Most of it wound up on my isolation gown and gloves, but some got on my face. I immediately threw up into my mask, for obvious reasons. There is no moral to this story. It's just disgusting. That IS nasty! I probab...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Anyway, the "House of the Never Rising Sun, part Zwei. Still wondering why my Boss asked me if I had my gun (a trusty Model 65 S&W .357 Magnum revolver) with me, I grabbed my Box O' Tricks (tools), loaded up the wheel chair in the van in record time. After filling out the pre drive check list form (...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

I resisted signing up for years - I figured there were guys who needed it a lot worse than me. But then came the day I was unable to work, and had serious health issues, so I went in. I just couldn't afford the hundreds of dollars per month of medications, and I wasn't ready to croak just yet. The ...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Who wants another Unca RifleMan's Tales of Horror and Macabre Repair Calls? No? Too bad. I call this one "The House of the Never Rising Sun." (Bare with me. It has been a long time since I have written one of these tales and trying to get the style right. Anomic Aphasia is a real bitch.) This most o...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

They sure do. My first application was denied. I am appealing it. My attorney couldn't believe it. Just because you become ill or injured doesn't mean you get disability from Social Security. A judge or two might have to decide that. I have not heard anything yet, but it has only been 10 days. It ma...

A hearing to see if Social Security will consider me disabled for benefits.

It was a rough thing to go through. I don't won't to go through it again.

Oh, and the Michigan State lottery jackpot is almost up to $550 MILLION!

That's half a billion. Need to buy a ticket, because Unca RifleMan wants his own private island.

Re: My Job, My Hell...

TheLastRifleMan, I had always wondered where you had gone and now I got my answer. I had hoped it was something else keeping you away from ZS. Something a lot less medically related and more of a "Hey, TheLastRifleMan won the lottery and is taking an extended vacation and is too busy to check in wi...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Thanks laager! It's been tough, tougher then anything I have ever been through. I woke up one morning in March of 2014 and found I couldn't talk, read or write.

I have been getting better, thanks to lot of therapy. It's been taking me this long to re learn to type anything that makes sense.

Re: My Job, My Hell...

There was a lot of that from my previous employer. It was a family owned business and only the family members had the upper management positions, i.e. CEO, COO, etc. About every three months, they would read the latest "How to Succeed in Business and Make Gagillions of Dollars" book and would sudden...

Ouch! I have been around the smelly stuff myself, many times. It's never fun. I think it was intended to smell, look and feel bad as an evolutionary adaptation. After all, it is WASTE material. I think the human brain is also wired to just get rid of the stuff one way or another. It took me a year t...

I just can't imagine the stuff you have seen, Halfpint. I have vague ideas, but as specifics go, even after doing the jobs I have done and dealing with the public, I really couldn't grasp some of the things you have witnessed. Keep them coming, we would really like to see more. Just a general note, ...

You know what people that work with the public need these day's? Tranquilizer guns that fire darts loaded with thorazine. It's the perfect way to give someone an "adult" time out.

Re: My Job, My Hell...

I thought you could top the previous one about the guy with the tattoos.

I was wrong.

Was it the food? The water? The inoculations? What made the guys your were stationed with so insane?

Just wondering, no offense.

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Dear Gods in Valhalla....!

Out of all of the lurid (if I may use the description) tales you have presented here, that is in the top five. Three easily.

The tattoo was the true climax of the whole thing. How appropriate!
